International DEB tele course

There is an intensive course on DEB theory once every two years, combining a tele part with a classroom part. The next one is planned to run in May 2021 in Halifax, Canada. This course starts with a tele part that you do at home, in which you will read through the main chapters of Bas Kooijman's DEB book and discuss through an internet board. Practice teaches that this is a much better way to go through the book than reading it by yourself. The second part will be in classroom mode (with lectures, exercises, discussions) and linked to the international DEB symposium in 2021. The course focusses on the standard DEB model and on the add-my-pet applications. For more information, see the DEBwiki and the website for the 2021 event. See also  the website for the 2019 course for the previous event.

We intend to organise the TKTD summerschool once every two years, even though various circumstances have prevented us to stick to that schedule in recent years. This course deals with toxic effects on the energy budget using the DEBkiss simplification, and provides a more gentle introduction into DEB theory for animals. This summerschool is planned for end of 2021, with, if possible, a face-to-face part in Denmark. More info will be posted here, when available.
